No trick questions

no trick questions

Traditional assessment tools use trick questions and puzzles for the screening, which creates a lot of frustration among candidates about having to go through irrelevant screening assessments.

View sample questions

The main reason we started Adaface is that traditional pre-employment assessment platforms are not a fair way for companies to evaluate candidates. At Adaface, our mission is to help companies find great candidates by assessing on-the-job skills required for a role.

Why we started Adaface
Reason #3

Non-googleable questions

We have a very high focus on the quality of questions that test for on-the-job skills. Every question is non-googleable and we have a very high bar for the level of subject matter experts we onboard to create these questions. We have crawlers to check if any of the questions are leaked online. If/ when a question gets leaked, we get an alert. We change the question for you & let you know.

How we design questions

These are just a small sample from our library of 10,000+ questions. The actual questions on this Selenium Online Test will be non-googleable.

🧐 Question

Medium

AJAX Request Completion Handling
Handling AJAX Requests
Solve
Suppose you are testing a web application with Selenium, where a button click (id="sendRequest") sends an AJAX request to fetch user data. The data, once retrieved, is displayed in a div with id="userData". This div is already present in the HTML with empty text. You need to ensure that the AJAX request is completed and the data is loaded before proceeding. (You can assume that the AJAX request will always succeed.

Consider the following pseudo JavaScript code which is used in the web application:
 image
Given the above code, which of the following Python Selenium code snippets should be used to correctly wait for the AJAX request to complete and the userData to be loaded?

Medium

Handling Dynamic Elements
Multiple Iframes
Dynamic Element Handling
Solve
You are automating a test for a webpage that contains multiple iframes. One of these iframes contains a button with a dynamic ID that always contains the substring "btn". Upon clicking this button, a text box appears within the same iframe, having a dynamic ID containing the substring "txtBox". You have to input text into this text box. The correct iframe does not have any unique identifiable attribute.

Below is the simplified pseudo code to illustrate your initial setup:
 image
How should you modify your code to perform these operations efficiently, ensuring reliable element location and interaction among multiple iframes?

Medium

Handling Mouse Actions
Keyboard and Mouse Actions
Solve
You are automating a test case where a user has to hover over an image, causing a tooltip to appear. After the tooltip appears, the user has to right-click on the tooltip to see a context menu. You have to validate that the context menu appears correctly. The tooltip has an ID of tooltip and the context menu has an ID of contextMenu.

Given the below pseudo code for the page:
 image
Which of the following Selenium Python code snippets should be used to perform the above-described actions and validations?

Easy

Handling Multiple Windows
Window Handles
Switching Windows
Solve
You are working with Selenium to automate a test case where clicking a button on a webpage (http://example.com) opens a new window. You have to perform operations in the new window and then return to the original window. Below is a simplified version of your initial code:
 image
After clicking the button, a new window opens, and you need to input text into a text box in the new window with id="textBox". Afterwards, you need to close this new window and click another button in the original window with id="originalWindowButton".

How should you modify your code to handle the multiple windows and perform the necessary operations?

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Selenium Online Test in your hiring process is that it is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. In other words: you want to use the test to eliminate the candidates who do poorly on the test, not to select the candidates who come out at the top. While they are super valuable, pre-employment tests do not paint the entire picture of a candidate’s abilities, knowledge, and motivations. Multiple easy questions are more predictive of a candidate's ability than fewer hard questions. Harder questions are often "trick" based questions, which do not provide any meaningful signal about the candidate's skillset.

Science behind Adaface tests
Reason #6

1 click candidate invites

Email invites: You can send candidates an email invite to the Selenium Online Test from your dashboard by entering their email address.

Public link: You can create a public link for each test that you can share with candidates.

API or integrations: You can invite candidates directly from your ATS by using our pre-built integrations with popular ATS systems or building a custom integration with your in-house ATS.

Read more about the proctoring features.

How do I interpret test scores?

The primary thing to keep in mind is that an assessment is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. A skills assessment is optimized to help you eliminate candidates who are not technically qualified for the role, it is not optimized to help you find the best candidate for the role. So the ideal way to use an assessment is to decide a threshold score (typically 55%, we help you benchmark) and invite all candidates who score above the threshold for the next rounds of interview.

What experience level can I use this test for?

Each Adaface assessment is customized to your job description/ ideal candidate persona (our subject matter experts will pick the right questions for your assessment from our library of 10000+ questions). This assessment can be customized for any experience level.

Does every candidate get the same questions?

Yes, it makes it much easier for you to compare candidates. Options for MCQ questions and the order of questions are randomized. We have anti-cheating/ proctoring features in place. In our enterprise plan, we also have the option to create multiple versions of the same assessment with questions of similar difficulty levels.

I'm a candidate. Can I try a practice test?

No. Unfortunately, we do not support practice tests at the moment. However, you can use our sample questions for practice.

What is the cost of using this test?

You can check out our pricing plans.

Can I get a free trial?

Yes, you can sign up for free and preview this test.
